Fan Boys & Girls across the country will recognize Morena Baccarin as ‘Inara Serra’ from the cult classic television series Firefly (and its movie sequel Serenity). Since that role, Baccarin has focused her career primarily in the genres of Fantasy & Science Fiction, carving out a nice niche for herself that should keep her busy in television and movies for years to come. In addition to her current role as ‘Dr. Leslie Thompkins’ on the successful television series Gotham, Baccarin is now taking on the big screen as ‘Vanessa’ in the upcoming Deadpool movie!
Best Known For: Firefly television series & Serenity (‘Inara Serra’), Stargate SG-1 television series & Stargate: The Ark of Truth (‘Adria’), V television series (‘Anna’), Homeland television series (‘Jessica Brody’), Gotham television series (‘Dr. Leslie Thompkins’)
Breakout Role (according to the masses): Firefly television series
Breakout Role (according to Leo Craven): Gotham television series
– I’m sorry, I’m sorry! I did not catch Firefly the first time around, but my friends eventually turned me on to Serenity on Netflix and since then I’ve made up for my lack of proper television viewing…I have been watching Gotham since the beginning though…does that count for anything?
Box Office Status: Co-Star Firepower
Next Project to Look Out for: Deadpool (In theaters February 12th…Happy Valentine’s Day!)
Most Famous Role: I couldn’t find any good clips from Firefly, but this clip of “Barbara vs Lee” from Gotham is one of my favorites:
